Welcome to the most unique, cozy, intimate, quiet, inviting apartment in San Francisco. Nestled in the famous Haight Ashbury district just blocks from Golden Gate Park, your new temporary home away from home is not only surrounded by natural outdoor beauty (as viewed through the many windows which allow plenty of natural, indirect sunlight), it is equally beautiful on the inside. The home is a 1900s Victorian and the neighboring apartments are filled with inviting, trustworthy, quiet, and friendly neighbors.
This studio apartment has a loft bed, which therefore nets the floor space closer to that of a one-bedroom apartment. Equipped with a full bathroom and kitchen and a perfect little office nook, you just might find yourself staying in more often than you had planned.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. San Francisco is one of the World's greatest cities...add to the experience by staying in this incredible one-of-a-kind accomodation.
Oh, and please note: the loft bed is a queen so the bed comfortably fits 2 people. I also have a futon plus its bedding for an additional person. I think the space is comfortable for 2-3 people. If you elect for 4 people you'll have to bring bedding for the extra person, or have them share the futon (but it's a twin size so it's tight). I discourage more than 3 due to noise and mess. Please note there is an additional charge for a 4th person of $15/night and you must run it by me first. Thank you!
Please treat my home like you would want someone to treat yours. I have a few of my personal belongings around but tucked away, so please respect the space and my things and don't go through them. Other than that make yourself at home and enjoy your stay! If you choose to stay, I'll be emailing you a list of things to help make your stay more comfortable.
View from couch of office nook. Plenty of standing room underneath unless you're wicked tall.
My husband and I stayed at Alexa's studio for one night during our road trip from Seattle to California.
We have booked the place the same day that we needed it, so it was a bit tense to wait when the owner responded. She answered in several hours. So make sure to ask for reservation in advance.
It was pretty hard to find a parking lot close to the place. Actually there is no "free parking" as we were expected. Well, it is free, but it's just a space on the street if you will be able to find one. Yes, we came late in the evening and it could be tougher to find spot at that time. But next morning not a lot changed, actually. Most of the cars still were on there places. Seems like not a lot of people use there cars to go to work in the morning. So I would call it "no" free parking.
The place itself is really nice and cosy. Managed really good for such an old building. But we got some unexpected "neighbors". Ants made their path all around the bed. Taking into account the fact that the house is pretty old it's not unusual. But still we were sleeping on a futon on the floor. Great that we had that option:)
I'm sure that since we left Alexa got rid of the ants, already. So her place should be ant-free at this point:) So please enjoy the cosy clean loft with great location, by the way!
Alexa is a great host. From the time we arrived, to the time we left, she was in constant contact with me. She always check with us if we are okay.
Alexa was so great that I immediately booked another trip to stay at her place!
Very accommodating, clean and adorable place. It had more space than expected and communication was a easy. Also in a great location.
Alexa is very sweet and accomodating. The apartment is adorable, sunny, and quiet. I will definitely be staying here again when I am in town. It's exactly the kind of place I'd want if I lived here, cozy and warm.
Overall great stay!! Easy and flexible checkin/checkout guidelines. Location was great with easy access to downtown, golden gate park, the haight.
The room is unique. The location is great. You can take the bus to a lot of places. Overall a great experience.

About the Host, Alexa
My name is Alexa and I moved to San Francisco in March to pursue studies at an Advertising Portfolio School. I am 33 years old, and have spent the last decade as a massage therapist and pole fitness instructor. My boyfriend and his son live back in my hometown of Salt Lake City, so I am back and forth between two homes all the time. I love to perform, I enjoy close bonds with good friends, and I absolutely love trying new restaurants and exploring all types of music and performance arts. I hope you enjoy your visit to San Francisco! Hit me up for any questions you might have!
